Ok, I finally got my pc running, (Oh happy day :D) but my cpu temps are high. My wb is on right, and I used AS3 but it idles at 40C /104F. My mobo is fine at 24C /75F. Is there something wrong or what?? My T-bird with a crappy stock HSF on it idles at 94F. Help please???
 
Most likely your temps are lower than with the HSF, the sensor in your mobo no longer has air being pushed on it.

Is there any way to find out what the real temp is??
 
If you can overclock higher @ the same voltage as before, then you are running cooler.
